as mississippi and texas kind of going out to enact reforms. in 2004 and 2008, mississippi, for example, enacted laws that expanded parole eligibility and eliminated their truth in sentencing law placing parole restrictions on nonviolent offenders. they actually said if you're serving a nonviolent offense, you can be eligible for parole after serving 25 president of your -- 25% of your sentence rather than 85 president of your sentence. those were projected to save the state $450 million between 2008 and 2012 and reduce its prison population growth by a very significant percentage. since 2008 mississippi's crime rate has fallen to it lowest level since 1984. kentucky is another state enacted a law in 2011 that eliminated pretrial detention for many drug offenses including marijuana possession. and instituted probation for drug possession, reduced sentences for drug crimes and expanded parole eligibility. that reform is projected to save the state $422 million by 2020 and reduce its prison population growth by almost 19%. in ohio in 2011, ohio enacted a law that eliminated the crack cocaine sente

to reapply, there's about 56 of them in louisiana and mississippi, to reapply for loan forgiveness. it would be up to about $400 million up to the communities to apply including about 30 million that they've already paid us in principal and interest. so to me this is something that really shouldn't be in this bill. i'm not saying that it -- it may be important, may be critical but not part of the sandy supplemental. host: so if i'm hearing you correctly, there are things designated emergency within this but not necessarily specific to sandy. guest: right. and there are things in here where they're nice to have. for instance, even going all the way down to the small there's $20,000 for the department of justice inspector general to replace cars that were damaged by sandy i guess, i mean new equipment. well, the justice department has more than 40,000 vehicles. but i kind of think that they could take one out? this shouldn't be viewed as free money. that was proposed by the administration. it's also people in the administration wanting to feather their nest as well. host: as far as your analys
of "roe v. wade." >> one of the underreported stories is mississippi, very con ser vative state by any measure, and the proposal was a constitutional amendment prop e proposed before the legislature of a personhood amendment, and this would go to potentially affect birth control, and ivf, and in fact, the mississippi vo voters defeated it overwhelmingly by 16 points, because again, it focussed on the question, well, who is really the best person to make the decision about pregnancy at whatever stage? a woman or is it a politician? >> and the pugh poll that you pointed to, also, and you guys have been talking about this at planned parenthood is the issue of morality and whether this is a moral choice or not to have an abortion, and you know, it is obviously still for even for people who support "e"roe v. wa" conflicted. so that debate is to allow the conflict to stay there and we understand that for so many people, it is going to be at the core. >> i want to take that seriously, and as a person who has done almost everything with the uterus that one can do, right, so i have a child, an
